EAST GRANBY, CT – June 16, 2015 – Nufern, a leading U.S. manufacturer of specialty optical fibers, fiber lasers and amplifiers, and fiber optic gyro coils, announced today it has expanded its fiber laser product offerings by introducing the NuPULSE, a cutting-edge, industrial-grade picosecond fiber laser. This laser is the first of its kind to offer output pulse durations down to 750 ps with selectable pulse width.
The NuPULSE is a 20W fiber laser with a continuously tunable pulse duration from 750 ps to 100 ns and repetition rates from 20 kHz up to 5 MHz. The short pulse duration and high repetition rates combine to give high-speed, permanent black marking on a variety of metals. The single mode beam quality and picosecond pulses open up a variety of high-precision marking and cold-processing micromachining applications such as Li-Ion battery foil cutting.
Eric Lim, VP of Industrial Laser Business, remarked, “The NuPULSE brings an unprecedented level of pulse width tunability to industrial MOPA fiber lasers, enabling our customers to explore new applications and optimize operating parameters for quality and yield. This product introduction demonstrates Nufern’s commitment to provide innovative and reliable laser sources for 24/7 production settings.”
The NuPULSE provides all these features in a compact and easy to integrate package with a 1.5 meter umbilical and integrated isolator and beam expander. The laser is completely controlled via an industry?standard digital interface.
